The 2020-21 edition of La Liga is back in action this weekend with another round of matches as Celta Vigo take on Levante at the Balaidos Stadium on Friday. Both teams have been inconsistent this season and will need to win this game.
Levante are in 12th place in the La Liga standings at the moment and have slumped after a strong start to their season. The Valencia-based side suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to Elche and will want to bounce back in this match.
Celta Vigo, on the other hand, currently find themselves in ninth place in the league table and are yet to hit their peak this year. The Galicians edged Osasuna to a 2-1 victory in their previous game and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
